Abstract

Theoretical analysis of electromagnetic wave propagation in planar waveguides filled with uniaxial chiral anisotropic media is presented. The guide parallel plates are assumed to be perfect electric conductors. The material filling the waveguide is a generalized medium that incorporates chiral and metamaterials. The behavior of the field intensities, the dispersion curves, and the energy flux for three varieties of uniaxial chiral media are examined numerically. The results demonstrate the phenomena of backward waves in uniaxial anisotropic chiral media. The comparisons of the computed results of the presented general formulations with published results for some material cases confirm the accuracy of the presented analysis.
